VGPolyglot (on 11 January 2014)

The game got delayed, however the game still got removed from this list. I guess they finally put it back into the list.

JWeinCom (on 11 January 2014)

Well... the game was delayed like three months ago... But what does that mean? Did it get 48K this week and the total is 78K or did they just collapse all of the preorders into one week?

Gravity Dase 2 the last guardian.


late_release (on 11 January 2014)

I really love those Dark Souls 2 pre-orders. For a game that many still call it a niche, those numbers make even the best sellers envy


nnodley (on 11 January 2014)

Infamous is gonna be the best selling game in the franchise!!!


Shadow1980 (on 13 January 2014)

Is that right for Destiny? Did the the XBO version really get over four times the preorders of the PS4 version last week?


zedo0 (on 12 January 2014)
